Ashok Galla, grandson of superstar Krishna and nephew of Mahesh Babu, who surprised many with his knack for humour and his dance moves in his debut Hello, is wrapping up his second film at a brisk pace. He’s teaming up with Arjun Jandyala, a former protege of Boyapati Sreenu, for an action entertainer. The latter had earlier helmed the actioner Guna 369 with Kartikeya.

Prasanth Varma has written the story for the film tentatively titled #AshokGalla2.

Looking forward to many great moments on the sets,” Ashok Galla introduced his co-star.

Manasa Varanasi dons a langa-voni in the poster for an auspicious occasion in the film. Earlier, a special glimpse introducing Ashok Galla’s massy character was also unveiled by the makers, which received encouraging response from audiences. The film is expected to release in the final quarter of 2023 or early 2024. The other actors in the prestigious project will be introduced shortly.
